Quality Resort Bayside

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our son and I stayed here while vacationing in the area. I stayed in this hotel over 30 years ago when it was just "The Bayside". We arrived in Victoria on a Saturday and could not find a hotel. We hit the highway and headed North and did not find anything until we reached this hotel. I'd never experienced anything in my many travelling years like this. Literally everything was full. The lady at the front counter took mercy on us at 12:30 at night and very graciously rented us a room held vacant as a last resort due to a service issue. The lady let me inspect the room. All looked good so were took it. We also received a fair discount due to lateness and the room issue, which we could not determine. What a kind act this was. We slept well in a clean quiet room and had a great night sleep. We were both exhausted. The next day we found out the service issue was a previous guest complained of vibration from kitchen vents on a nearby section of roof. We did not hear a thing. Our heartfelt thanks to the lady who took mercy and gave us a good night sleep! We sure needed it.

Staff are wonderful. Hotel being updated ..some aged areas 4 of us went to the half empty restaurant on Thursday August 10th and were turned away as there were not enough staff Front desk staff Jan very kindly phoned Kalvas across the street and made reservations for us. We tried the restuarant again Saturday Aug 13 with 7:00 reservations for 4.. We ordered appys and soup which was cold. Decided not to continue with main courses. That part of our stay was very disappointing.

Pros: The staff are outstanding and very helpful. The restaurant is great. The rooms have been upgraded and are clean and the a/c are great and quiet. Cons: The carpets in the hall and the pool area are dirty and worn and the entire pool area needs refurbishing. The staff and the location make this property.

The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on the very pleasant patio , which has the best sea view in Parksville . Our server was wonderful . The food is delicious , and well presented . There is someone good in the kitchen !

We really enjoyed our stay at the Quality Resort Bayside. The staff and the location could not be beat. The front desk staff was always ready with directions and recommendations, which we took and thoroughly enjoyed. The room we had did not have a fridge, would have been a nice to have. We also did not pay extra for a room with a view because I thought we would not need it and that turned out to be a mistake. Next time I would really enjoy a room with an ocean view. I was traveling with my kids, 8 and 10. The staff was very friendly with them as well. The pool is sort of inside, sort of outside, with half a roof, which suited us fine in July. We would stay here again.

Friendly staff. Recently renovated room was very comfortable. Great views. Restaurant was great too. I would stay here again. Pool area was not very welcoming but the kids liked it. To bad you can't get to the sandy beach easily from here.

Stayed at the resort for 4 days. Great view overlooking the bay. Rooms clean and quiet. Great location between Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo. Restaurant, overlooking the bay, food excellent, and great friendly and helpful staff..

Not a bad place, the rooms need to be updated a bit but they're clean and functional. Smells old when you walk in. Fantastic view, our balcony opened to the beach. Great staff, always smiling. Good place to stay. Pet friendly.

Another great stay at one of our favourite Parksville hotels. My husband and I had an overnight with our young grandsons and the staff could not have been more helpful. Especially Holly, who took care of everything from our initial booking through check in........she was efficient and very friendly! Since we received the government employee rate, the double queen room was on the street side, but even without the fabulous views, the room was really good. The beds were comfy, with clean fresh smelling bedding and plenty of room to spread out a bit. Although the view was facing the street, it was quiet and we did enjoy the chairs on the balcony. The bathroom was quite upscale and very clean (although the bath towels could be bigger, they were also clean and fresh). This room had the quietest air conditioning unit I've ever seen in a hotel and kept the room cool all night. We used the pools and although they seem a bit older, the roof is open to the air and the kids had fun.......maybe some updating to the spa pool as the jets didn't work. All in all it was a good stay.....the hotel is very central, the restaurant serves good food and the renovations that we noticed were tastefully done. Thanks everyone and hope to see you again soon!

The room was average, if you are going to stay here, do it for the location, so nice to be able to walk down to the beach. It's rocky in front of the hotel but just a short stroll to the sandy Parksville beach and park. Because of the walk to get to the sandy part of the beach, it's not that convenient for kids under 6. Kids under 6 I would drive over to the park, any age over would enjoy the walk, navigating the rocks, and finding the little crabs. The restaurant was good, pricey though, just like everything on the island.
